Dear City Officials,

I would like to express my concern regarding the adoption of Ranked Choice Voting system. While it may seem like an appealing option at first, I strongly believe that it is not the best choice for our city.

First and foremost, Ranked Choice Voting can often……

🧵This article from @nytimes
on #voting machines from ES&S (@essvote) applying for use in #NY focuses on #misinformation.
But what about misinformation from ES&S. Like they lied to @NYSBOE
about where they had pending lawsuits……
Facts about what will happen if #NY uses all-touchscreen #voting machines.
- They will "cost a small fortune to purchase & maintain."
- They cost $10,000 each, double the cost of a standard scanner + you have to buy A LOT more. HIgher costs x more machines = OUCH for taxpayers Image
How many more #voting machines are used w/all-touchscreen (all-BMD) systems?

#BMD = ballot-marking device, All systems have BMDs for voters who want to use them. We don't all need to.

@OSET estimates all-BMD systems require 5 TIMES as many voting machines. Costs go up not down. Image

We have now moved into committee! SB23-111 is for #worker protections & makes sure that public employees can engage in the political process like everyone else

Public employees are nurses, teachers, public service workers & EMT drivers #copolitics

YES ON SB23-111 👨‍⚕️
The right to strike for public employees is only possible after presenting to a board - there is not a avenue for public employees to #unionize or #organize if they think they need too

We are now hearing from a Nurse who tells us 'this impacts you all cause you seek health care'
We have testimony from @DenverHealthMed worker - who says "you do not need a heart beat in a seat, you need a capable health care worker when you are seeking health care"

"we need to level the playing field between our bosses & unions" #copolitics

YES on SB23-111 🔥

Post-midterm reflections THREAD: I am #thankful for every voter who looked at the candidates on their ballot and chose those who respect our electoral process over those who do not, especially candidates running for important election-related offices such as Secretary of State.
I give thanks for the thousands of volunteers and election officials who worked to ensure that #voting and vote counting proceeded efficiently and fairly. #midterms2022 #VotingRights
I am also thankful for the numerous pro-democracy groups (including @CampaignLegal!) who guarded vigilantly against efforts to disenfranchise #voters, and responded when necessary, including with legal challenges. #midterms2022

Our guest: @bernstein_lynn will talk about techniques she is using to protect, monitor & verify election results in North Carolina.

We will also show you how we're comparing the number of voters who vote with ballots scanned.

Here is our latest report…
Take a look at a form that we've developed to increase public confidence in election results:

At poll locations, with a poll watcher certificate, we check if the number of voters matches the number of ballots. At this location numbers matched perfectly. 198 voters /198 ballots.

What is a #consensus mechanism?

Quick 🦉 fact before we dive in..

Did you know that the collective noun for a group of owls is a ‘Parliament’?

This is a great starting point to understanding #consensus mechanisms on a #blockchain
1/ A #consensus mechanism on #blockchain is the process by which participants ‘agree’.

A bit like #voting in a #parliament.

This simple diagram describes the basic process:
2/ #consensus is critical to #blockchain because it determines how #data is added to the #database - that is, how the next #block is added to the chain, which as we explained last week is secured by #encryption

I have 1 yr of immigration status left in the US. I have lived here since I was 7 yrs old and I'm 21 now. I have no feasible pathway to stay in this country permanently, let alone citizenship. Last year my father, who is the principal #visa holder, suffered a heart attack (1)
My family was terrified of losing him, our visa status, and being deported. Visa immigrants are the fastest growing population of folks becoming undocumented- why is no one talking about this? The US #Immigration system is broken on the undocumented AND documented side. (2)
Undocumented folks are blamed for entering without status when most are overstaying their visas. GC #backlog folks are blamed for “taking away” jobs even though there is a massive labor shortage in the US. Politicians pit our communities against each other and we let them (3)

1/ This incident have to do with the global context. The West...has thrown its entire #propaganda machine into agitation work and has given a lot of encouragement and assistance to the so-called democrats or opposition in China — people who are in fact are the scum [of 17]

Thread #log4j
"The ‘most serious’ security breach ever is unfolding right now. Here’s what you need to know."

Wondering how this affects #voting machines? Is anyone looking into that?
@rad_atl @VickerySec @kiniry @benniejsmith

via @washingtonpost…
“The log4j vulnerability is the most serious vulnerability I have seen in my decades-long career,” Jen Easterly, U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency director, said in a Thursday interview on CNBC.
"#Log4j is a chunk of code that helps software applications keep track of their past activities. Instead of reinventing a “logging” — or record-keeping — component each time developers build new software, they often use existing code like log4j instead. It’s free on the Internet"

Of 15 #Republican candidates for Secretary of State (the office that oversees #elections), in 5 battleground states,

10 lack confidence in the 2020 results or flat-out claim it stolen.

Only 2 of 9 interviewed acknowledged #Biden as the legitimate winner.
In 2020, #Trump, and #GOP legislators, not only undermined trust in elections, with false claims repeatedly debunked, they told partisan state legislators to send electors for Trump in states where voters selected Biden; a blatant rejection of #democracy.
It was only laws, and honorable officials holding to those laws, that prevented the #coup from succeeding.

The GOP are not done. Those protections are only going to get weaker with time.

2. "It started out a good day. The day before I celebrated my 14th anniversary with my husband. The cherry blossom tree we planted in the backyard was exploding in pink taffy balls, and the smell of the lilies he got me floated through the living room as I walked to my desk."

So heard a Texas legislator defend his #voting bill on @CNN this morning by countering “well how much fraud do you think is acceptable” even after being confronted with the study indicating that recent research has uncovered less than 20 instances of voting fraud.
So if any potential for voting fraud is a reason for Republicans to act in such an aggressive manner then I hope they will rethink their tolerances in other area?
Science has shown us that there are levels of contamination to drinking water that do not pose a threat to human health, but Republicans if zero potential for voting fraud is the goal shouldn’t that be the goal for arsenic, lead, and other heavy metals in drinking water?
